Norwich Film Festival: Withnail and I (15)

Posted on behalf of Norwich Film Festival
Synopsis: Bruce Robinson's celebrated cult comedy starring Richard E. Grant and Paul McGann. It's the end of the 1960s and two out-of-work actors, Withnail (Grant) and 'I' (McGann), subsist on a diet of booze, drugs and fags in their revolting Camden flat. In order to escape the depressing nexus of visits from their dealer and the months of untouched washing-up, they escape to the country, with the intention of getting some R and R at a cottage owned by Withnail's uncle Monty (Richard Griffiths). However, things do not exactly go as planned, Withnail being particularly unsuited to the quiet social mores of countrypeople. The pair's friendship starts to become sorely tested amid the vicissitudes of their 'holiday'. More ominously, uncle Monty appears in person seemingly with something of an eye for 'I'.

This screening will be a ‘pay what you can afford’ event, meaning that the tickets are absolutely free to book. At the venue we will have a donations bucket and if you can afford to pay anything up to the price of a ticket we will gratefully accept it, however, if you can’t afford anything at this time, you are still more than welcome to join us for the film.
